Weighty is­sue for Am­ber

Ac­tress up­loads on­line rant at crit­ics

7 Days in Dubai - - CELEBRITY FIX -

For­mer Glee star Am­ber Ri­ley has hit out at crit­ics of her size.

The ac­tress shared an emo­tional video on In­sta­gram in which she asked her de­trac­tors why they care so much about her be­ing over­weight.

She said: “You know, there are just some things that my sober mind keeps me from shar­ing. That ends tonight. I’ve got some things I need to get off my chest.

“Why does me be­ing fat of­fend so many peo­ple? Is it be­cause I’m con­fi­dent and I’m fly and I’m sexy? Do my thighs of­fend? Does my stom­ach of­fend? Does my be­hind of­fend? Why?! Why?!”

Am­ber, who won sea­son 17 of US show Danc­ing With the Stars, went on to in­sist that she is proud of her shape and re­vealed she at­tracts plenty of pos­i­tive at­ten­tion from the op­po­site sex.

She added: “I love all colours, shapes and sizes. So, just so you know, when you come on here and you call me fat, it’s not an in­sult dummy.”

Mean­while, Am­ber, 30, re­cently in­sisted she leads a very “nor­mal” life, de­spite her fame, and doesn’t worry about her suc­cess com­ing to an end so long as she can still pur­sue her pas­sions in other ways.

She said: “To me, Hol­ly­wood is a place where I go to play, it’s not real. My life is very nor­mal. I al­ways make sure that I leave what­ever it is I’m do­ing at work out­side my home. “It’s a priv­i­lege to be a part of it, but if it was all over for me, I would just find some­thing else to do, even if it was do­ing lo­cal the­atre or gigs.

“Singing, act­ing and danc­ing will al­ways be part of my life.”

Am­ber is best known for play­ing Mercedes in Glee and found life with­out the show “weird”.

She ex­plained “All good things must come to an end. But the last week was so sad.

“It was weird be­cause you go from be­ing on set ev­ery day and hav­ing peo­ple telling you what you are do­ing to­mor­row, to hav­ing to take con­trol of your life.”
